American Classical Music: 24 of the USA's Best Works

 America is perhaps the home of liberty, prosperity, and pop culture. Yet, while we all enjoy the Hollywood blockbuster movies, the fast food, and the rock and roll, America has produced lots of sublime high-art that we are in danger of neglecting. In the field of classical composers, America can boast several first rate geniuses, such as Leonard Bernstein, George Gershwin, Aaron Copland - and even the immigrant Stravinsky! So, let's celebrate this gift that America's sons have given to the whole wide world to enjoy. First we'll start with Barber's immortal Adagio for Strings, and after that... you'll see!
